Coaching Achievements
The 2012-13 season will be Matthew Nielsen's fifth year as the Head Men's and Women's Tennis Coach at the University of Rochester. He was named to the position on September 1, 2008 after serving as the assistant coach for both teams for five years. Nielsen is a 2001 graduate of Penn State University with a baccalaureate degree in Kinesiology. During his time as a Nittany Lion, he played as high as 1st doubles and 2nd singles. He earned his master's degree in Business Administration from the Univeristy of Rochester's Simon Graduate School of Business in 2008.

After only four years as head coach, Nielsen has coached the Yellowjackets to some of their greatest success in program history. Rochester finished the 2009-10 season ranked #20 in the nation after finishing 4th at the UAA Championships, upsetting 14th ranked Washington University in the first round. The Yellowjackets also received a national ranking during the 2010-11 campaign, finishing 5th in the conference. Under the tutelage of Coach Nielsen, Rochester individuals have accounted for two ITA Northeast Regional Singles titles, three New York State Division III championships, four ITA All-American awards and four All-UAA honors. In 2010, Frances Tseng earned both the UAA and ITA Northeast Regional Rookie of the Year Awards. Coach Nielsen has also had two players selected to compete in the NCAA Division III Singles Championship (Lia Weiner in 2011 and Frances Tseng in 2012).

Along with the strong performance on the court, the Yellowjackets have seen much success in the classroom under Coach Nielsen. Since the 2008-09 season, 26 players have earned the ITA Scholar-Athlete Award, given to student-athletes who earn a 3.5 GPA or above for the academic year. The team has earned the ITA All-Academic Team Award (average team GPA of 3.2 or above) all four years.

Belonging in the UAA, arguably the toughest conference in Division III tennis, the Yellowjackets perennially play top competition from all across the country. The team has made steady improvement and is looking forward to competing hard in the upcoming season.
